136/366: planting out the lower bluestone bed

Creating a new garden is always so satisfying, although sometimes the spaces left between the plants can look really empty. A few short years later though, you find out if you did actually allow enough growing room.

After our first bluestone wall was constructed, we planted out the lower bed first.

The nandina in the centre of the bed is still thriving; a lovely mass of colour.

Looking down towards the house from the top tier of the back yard, while it was still a grassed area, you can see the garden taking shape. Next project: the upper bluestone bed. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
